Wimbledon, Day 2. June 25, 2008

Posted by phoenixaeon in tennis, Wimbledon.

Well, it was a surprising day yesterday.

Naomi Cavaday played out of her skin in the first set against Venus Williams, but Venus pipped her in the tie breaker. The second set was a bit of a non-event for Cavaday, really. Score: 7-6 (7-5), 6-1.

Anne Keothavong, on the other hand, battled back from a set down to win her match against Vania King (USA). Score: 4-6, 6-2, 6-3.

Katie O’Brien also went out. At one point in the second set she was 5-0 up against Shahar Peer (ISR), but Peer won the next seven games to take the match. Score: 3-6, 5-7.

The blokes fared a bit better, two of the three of them getting through to the second round.

Andy Murray
played in a highly entertaining match against Fabrice Santoro (FRA). In the end, Murray took the match in three straight sets. Score: 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 (7-5).

Ranked outsider Chris Eaton, who battled through qualies, rallied hard against Serbian Boris Pashanski, making it into the second round in straight sets. He faces a tough second round match against Dmitry Tursunov (RUS). Score: 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 6-4.

Unfortunately, Jamie Baker fell to Stefano Galvani (ITA). Score: 4-6, 2-6, 3-6.
